McNulty’s work deals with hidden history, memory and place, and with aspects of everyday life and experience. McNulty creates a visual language that expresses the intricacies of memory, creating arenas for identity to be revealed and understood in the broader context of the past.

In her practice, McNulty often revisits these themes and is influenced by geography, agrarian culture and certain traditions inherent in Irish culture. To date, much of her work has been printmaking. These include lithographs, etchings, photoetchings and lambda prints. McNulty says: ‘Tracing, drawing and etching the images animate the past. Abandoned places and objects, still in time, exhale again. The large scale lithographs are close-ups, microscopic portals to the past.’ Margo also uses the medium of video as a means of exploring her relationship with the past.
